10 fleece-lined pants that will keep you cozy all winter

While fall is the time for picturesque outdoor activities like apple-picking, hiking, and pumpkin-patching, it’s also a the season when we slowly start to hibernate. As we transition into winter, the colder weather and a darker sky make it tough to leave your home, not to mention change out of your sweatpants and into real clothes. Owning a pair of fleece-lined pants solves this issue. The beauty of fleece-lined pants is that the outside is suitable enough to be seen, while the inside feels just as cozy as your favorite pair of pajamas.

Comfort and warmth are key this time of year when dressing, but we tend to stock up on fun fall sweaters and accessories to keep us warm, neglecting our lower limbs. Not this winter, though. The added fleece layer on the inside of your pants will your keep legs from freezing, while maintaining your impeccable style. 

Fleece-lined pants come in a variety of styles, from dark jeans you can dress up to leggings you can hike with on a cold day (or even use as a base layer come ski season).

Since this added layer is a functional feature, fleece-lined pants tend to be made by durable workwear and outdoor recreational brands, and thankfully come in fashionable fits and styles. Below, ten pants that are equally as stylish as they are cozy.
